Firstly we would like to thank you all for your support and trust for our project.

We have had a number of setbacks throughout the project which have ultimately lead to our delay.
Our first major setback was at the end of Kickstarter because officially we hit the target of 14,000 USD but behind the scenes unofficially we were not successful moneywise. From 14,000 USD we received 7,000 USD. This is because of the Kickstarter fees, our agency fees and also a number of people who pledged did not have the money in their bank accounts when it came to the time for KS to collect the pledges..this meant we had to take a personal loan and find another way to raise the money for the project .
As with all projects setbacks are often expected.
We knew that 7000 USD was not enough to finish the project so throughout the whole of last year we have been accepting pre orders.
Thankfully we still have people willing to support this project.
We also had to find a new team. Now we have a graphic designer, an amazing illustrator, a publisher and marketing to help us on our way.
Our initial release date was supposed to be in October last year and it was pushed back to February this year but we soon realised this is not possible due to the number of illustrations needed in such a short amount of time, plus printing.
So with all this said we hope to deliver the English edition in Spring!
We apologise for another disappointing delay, let’s hope it is the last.
In the meantime we will be sending you all completed maps and stories throughout the final process so you have something to use at home or in your lessons.
We are grateful for the support we continue to receive from you all. Your kind words motivate us and prove to us that what we are doing will be worth and will make a difference for people learning a new language.
Happy New Year!
Tom and Suzi
